So, no table saw.

08-09-2010 09:35 PM by AnnaEA | 5 comments »

Went over to Bill’s today to get the table saw. This did not go well, since the table saw did not run when we plugged it in. After a while of fiddling and checking things with other things, it has been determined that the switch and relay are bad, and it needs re-wiring. It has also been determined that a lot of the places on the frame of the saw, where you are supposed to be able to bolt things to other things, are also no good. The bits that the bolts should be bolted into ...

I just cannot believe that a hobbyist would have so many tools:

4 of July Table Build Extravaganza #1: Finishing the tables Part 1

08-09-2010 07:19 PM by Cory | 2 comments »

I began finishing two of the four tables we built over the weekend. My brother in law’s pregnant wife was due the Tuesday after our build, so I volunteered to finish his table. After much discussion, we also agreed to give “my” table to my father in law (it was his barn, after all). That means, I’m finishing two of the four tables and I’m going to go back and build a fifth table for myself. The table before finishing, without the barn wood in the shadow box...

Architecture #2: The boathouse, wooden wheels and giant grinding wheels

08-09-2010 06:25 PM by Woodcanuck | 3 comments »

This past weekend, I was giving my nephew a tour of the old boathouse at my parents’ cottage. It occurred to me that it was interesting to see the very rustic construction techniques used, so I began snapping pictures, thinking I’d discuss them here a little bit. In the process, I stumbled across a few things I hadn’t seen in years and a few that I never noticed before. Here are a couple of pictures of the inside construction, didn’t think to show the outside, w...

Project SC #2: Got to get it together,now

08-09-2010 05:34 PM by BritBoxmaker | 18 comments »

All those sticks. Laid out like the DNA sequence of something. I set to work decoding and before long I almost had it just insert two more waste pieces for the cut seperation like so tape it all together, again,and re-arrange to make the net for a box. Which I turned over to see the pattern ‘in the raw’ Looking good, yeah. Now we see why I put a layer of masking tape between the ‘tens’ rows in the seperate 1/3rd of the pattern. It meant that...

Amateur Hour #2: Nice weather = Not working in shop!

08-09-2010 04:30 PM by agartzke | 0 comments »

Well, perhaps it was foreshadowing or some fancy trick, but I mentioned in my first (and last) post that the weather was starting to turn nice. I should have kissed the idea of woodworking over the summer goodbye right then… lucky for me I got the bug to start up again a bit earlier than expected. I spent maybe 12 hours in the shop over the two days of the weekend. It’s time to start finishing the projects that I have started, and to my chagrin, that total is currently four (ye...

My Old Tools...!

08-09-2010 02:23 PM by Cozmo35 | 9 comments »

This is my first “blog” and I am not sure if this is even the right place to post it because I am not real clear as to what a “blog” really is! I made it to this rock we call earth just in time to be considered a baby boomer. I just caught the tail end of it (my life story). Any who,…I was cleaning up my garage/shop the other day (my wife says it’s about time!) when I started taking a closer look at the caliber of tools I have and have had for many,…many years. I got to thinking back to how I...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #67: Which Direction to go Next?

08-09-2010 12:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I have never been one to use an alarm clock much. It seems that I get into a certain rhythm and stay on that pattern until something in my life drastically changes. For quite a while now I am on the 5:45 – 6:00 plan. It seems that unless I really am wiped out, I naturally wake up at that time. I don’t fight it, as I love the quiet of the mornings and get some of my best writing done. I also sift through the emails and catch up with all the correspondence at that time. I like...

Heating Tung/Teak oil

08-09-2010 06:51 AM by ocwoodworker | 14 comments »

My local guru who I go to for advise, said to heat the tung oil to about 140 degrees and then apply it to my walnut table. Has anyone else done this? And if so what do you apply it with? A foam brush?
